If you have read the book do not waste your money

I was very disappointed with this movie. Now I know that movies are never as good as the books. But I think that when you make a movie based on a book you should stay true to the book as much as possible. They left out/changed so much from this movie that I have no idea how they are going to be able to make the seventh movie. I am not going to list all of the flaws because I do not have the time and I think that I would exceed the chars count for this post.


Now I know that that many people are going to disagree with me. What I am trying to do is save fans of the books time and money from watching this movie. Because if you have read the book you WILL be disappointed. If you have never read the books and have only watched the movies you will most likely enjoy it.

yes but the way i look at it is the film and book though losely related they are different it saves me from being disapointed as you oviously was.
Harry Potter the book could never be copied onto the big screen properly none of them are that doesn't stop them from being good films.
now when you pretend not to have read the book and just watch the film as a film, you can not tell me you do not enjoy it. Books give people images to make them create a world for themselves, a film is one persons veiw of the book therefore it will never be completly right.
I enjoyed the film and i think secretly so did you but the fact that you have obviously either just read the book to refresh your mind (if so a mistake i think) or have read it too many times that you really know it then you are too focused on that and not the fact that film is just there for a bit of fun and is not there to be completly acurate.
As you have said 'movies are never as good as the books' but the fact you have rushed out to watch it must mean that you really enjoyed the series so far and none of them have been acurate to the book they have been named after.

i totally agree with lilaclassxx!i have read the books and obviously the books are totally diferent from the movies and even if i feel like they (who made the movie lol) could put more scenes missings or better scenes (like the Sectusempra's scene, which is one of my favorite) but forgeting that i'm satisfied with the movie...because they can't use all the book, u know that's why is an adaptation! 'cause the movie will last like 4 or 5 hours! and that's will be a very bored movie and no money for the producers u know...I LOVE HARRY POTTER'S BOOKS and i understand ur mind but we have to put or feet on the ground and appreciate the work because face it, it's a good movie with very good effects! and a little bit of romance and comedy! so don't compare and enjoy it :)

**** BEWARE OF SPOILER IN THIS POST *****
I think what the op is talking about is the fact that they left out crucial elements of the book that make the story. Such as the fact that there is no battle for Hogwarts in the 6th movie, then what was the point of brining in all of the death eaters through the vanishing cabinet? so they could WATCH Draco attempt to kill Dumbledore? There was no funeral for Dumbledore and his wand was sitting in his office (harry was messing with it at the end) so how will Voldemort take it from his tomb? I believe that these issues were the ones the OP was referring to and i have to say i had them myself... i love the books and have loved the movies... but i think they could have easily taken out the burrow being destroyed and gave a quality scene at the end to lead into DH pt 1 and pt 2 much much nicer.
